Police officers from Poland, Romania and Lithuania are out on patrol in the UK to help clamp down on criminal gangs from eastern Europe.

They have been working alongside British police forces, checking cars and their drivers to see if they are wanted for offences in their home countries.

So far they have made over 50 arrests.
